In Trieste Riot1
TRIESTE -- OP) - Pro-Italan
demonstrations got out of, hand
in this disputed city yesterday and
territorial police, shooting to
break up a riotous, hostile crowd,
killed 2 persons and wounded 15.
Scores of other demonstrators
and police were injured in other
battling around the strategic
port, a part of the Trieste Free
Territory's Zone A that Britain
and the United States proposed
Oct. 8 to turn back to Italian ad-
ministration. About three dozen
were hospitalized.
THE SHOOTING came in latei
afternoon near the Roman Catho-
lic church of St. Anthony in
downtown Trieste. A priest wasI
reconsecrating the church becauseI
of blood spilled in it during a
melee between students and po-
lice earlier in the day.
As hundreds of students
crowded around the church for
the ceremony, a riot police jeep
moved into the throng. Students
began hurling paving blocks and
sticks at the occupants.
Witnesses said the police tried
to fight free of the crowd, but
failed. Before the fight ended it
was estimated 1,000 demonstra-
tors, all apparently students, and
200 police were involved.1
